Some research project experiences
1 - Center for Epidemiological Research at Federal University of Pelotas
 Research project - “The 2015 Pelotas (Brazil) Birth Cohort: influence of early life
determinants in health outcomes” (since March 2014).
Summary: Follow-up of all mothers who will give birth to kids in the year 2015 in the city of
Pelotas, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The study includes several objectives including analysis of
the influence and the determinants of physical activity during pregnancy on maternal and child
health using a early life approach, based on the measured level of physical activity by
accelerometry and self-report.
 Research project - “Effects of exercise training during pregnancy and outcomes
maternal and mother-child health outcomes: a randomized controlled trial (The PAMELA
Study) (since July 2014)
Summary: To evaluate the effectiveness of exercise training during pregnancy on maternal and
child health outcomes, through a randomized controlled trial nested in the 2015 Birth Cohort
Study, starting in September 2014 called PAMELA (Physically Active Mothers Enrolled in the
Longitudinal Analysis). Eligible women belonging to the birth cohort will be invited (between the
16th and 20th week of gestation) to be enrolled in the trial. After randomization, women will be
allocated into either one of these groups: control – 426 women who will keep their usual daily
activities; and intervention – 213 women who will engage in a PA program, 3 sessions a week
2 - Research Group on Physical Activity and Health, at the Federal University of Santa Catarina
 Research project – “Health risk behaviors Project (COMPAC) in youth of the Santa
Catarina State, Brazil” (March 2011 to September 2011):
Summary: The aim of this study is to investigate and compare aspects of lifestyle and the
presence of health risk behaviors in young Santa Catarina, after a decade. Specific objectives
include: (a) compare the prevalence of different lifestyle indicators in a representative sample of
young Santa Catarina (b) compare the prevalence of health risk behaviors presented by students
(c) Confronting the individual and environmental determinants of physical activity and other
behaviors between the two time periods; (d) check possible changes in the preferences of
moderate to vigorous physical activity and sedentary behaviors in this sample.
